Topic: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

I've been thinking about this for a while. Virtually every Bond film has a standout track (excluding titles) in differing styles over 50 years.

Personally I can't make up my mind between "Time to Get Out" in QoS, and "This Never Happened to the Other Feller" from OHMSS, so I'm gonna sit on the fence.

What's your favourite, if you could only pick one?

"How was your lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathises."

The track during the beach fight and when Blofeld drops his grenade in the bobsled in OHMSS

Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"

" I don't listen to hip hop!"

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Yes! It's essentially the same piece of music  -the PTS piece is "This Never Happened..." While the climactic piece is called "Bobsled Chase"  ajb007/cheers

"How was your lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathises."

"Bond 77" literally has me bouncing up and down every time I listen.

Theme from OHMSS

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

For me it's a four way tie between GoldenEye's Fatal Weakness, used when they first set off the GoldenEye, the music when the sea drill takes down the Devonshire, it's quite chilling and two from TWINE, the boat chase theme and the one that starts the scene at the cavier factory.

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Damn, what a difficult choice.

According to my iTunes player, my favourites are Bond 77 (TSWLM) and Tennyson and Komodo Dragon (SF).

According to my brain, my favourite is possibly 'Oddjob's Pressing Engagement' from GF.

gun barrel and man hunt from daf

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

All good choices. Looks like some of us like the pounding "chase" music and others like the more atmospheric tracks.

Bond 77 - I've always loved that too, definitely my favourite track of all the Sir Rog films.

"How was your lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathises."

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

My favorites are

Fast Pace:  Come In 007, Your Time Is Up. from TWINE.
Romantic:  Venice Boat Trip from CR-06.
Character:  Dinner Jackets also CR-06.

Classic Bond: Instrumental only Goldfinger. A great match to the original Bond theme.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Moonraker has replaced OHMSS as my favorite soundtrack but I really love the track from Living Daylights when Necros & Bond fall out of the Hercules..it might be called Inflight Flight but its just the section when they drop out and the Horns come in.

The Laser Beam from Goldfinger

The imagery and dialogue in this scene have become so iconic that the music is often over-looked, but I think this is Barry at his best. The music starts off quite playful with a little danger thrown in but as the scene progresses the tension really starts to rack up and gradually, with Connery, becomes more and more desperate.

It's a masterclass in tension building and as I said, it's a bit of music that is over-looked because of how iconic the scene has become.

1- On Her Majesty's Secret Service   2- Casino Royale   3- Licence To Kill   4- Goldeneye   5- From Russia With Love

Well said. It's Barry at his finest, and the model for such similar pieces as "Space March (Capsule In Space)" and "Gumbold's Safe". The music is superb, and as you say it's overlooked because of the iconic dialogue.

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Does anybody know the name of the song/tune or anything about the song/tune that plays during the flamenco dance scene in the pre-title sequence of GOLDFINGER?

I've been searching for it everywhere!

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

So many great, memorable songs/tracks. If I could only choose one then it would probably be "The Wedding" from You Only Live Twice. I have heard it so many times over the years, yet it has never failed to blow me away. John Barry at his absolute best.

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Hard for me to choose one in particular. But the combination of Tennyson followed by Enquiry (as it is in the movie) from Skyfall gets me going every time. Skyfall in every sense is my favorite Bond film, including score and title song.

1. Skyfall 2. Tomorrow Never Dies 3. From Russia With Love 4. Casino Royale 5. Goldeneye 6. Goldfinger 7. The Spy Who Loved Me 8. On Her Majesty's Secret Service 9. Quantum Of solace 10. Thunderball

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

"Death of Fiona"

"Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" is my favorite of Barry's Bond compositions, and it's put to terrific use in Thunderball.  My favorite is the calypso style used when Bond dances with Fiona.  The pleasant tune meanders for a while, then completely shifts into a current of building tension and a crescendo of bongos, before returning to Caribbean calm after Fiona is shot.  It's great on the soundtrack album and brilliant in the film.

Hilly...you old devil!

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

I have alway loved the "Into Miami" theme that comes right after Shirley bassey a done in goldifnger

Re: Favourite single track from all the soundtracks?

Hamburg Breakin/Break Out/Driving to Paris from Tomorrow Never Dies. It's got Espionage, action, and even a bit of Romance. And at around 4:50 in the song, it takes a huge leap and... Well, I'll let you listen to it!
